As we enter quarter four of 2022, we take the time to reflect on what’s working and what isn’t. Have we hit our quarter three goals? Succeeded in accomplishing all that was set out to do? Have we stopped doing what is holding us back in order to start doing what needs to be done to ensure progress?
The only way to start doing something new, is to stop doing the thing that is holding you back.
You can’t be an oversleeper, and be on time.
You can’t be a fast food regular, and eat clean.
You can’t give the bare minimum, and be an overachiever.
You can’t smoke, and be a non-smoker.
When setting goals or committing to making changes people often focus on what they have to give up. What they can’t do versus what they can do. The negative connotation associated with quitting makes it more difficult to commit to creating the new positive habit.
So, STOP stopping, and START starting.
Start being punctual. Become a health food connoisseur. Go above and beyond. Create your identity as a smoke free person.
By allowing ourselves the opportunity to achieve a positive quality, the journey, not just the finish line is filled with gratification.
How do we relearn how to make new habits and rules for ourselves and our teams that are “DO” focused.
Building new better habits doesn’t happen overnight. It is a commitment to not only start, but to continue on the path of positive change.
Ready, Set, Start!
